Came here with my best friend. Made a few wishes and sit on the benches looking at the amazing view.

I was there for a wedding formals shoot. It was HOT, but the spray off the fountain was enough to keep me cooler. I really wanted to jump in the fountain!

This place is such a beautiful and relaxing area for family or couple. Bring cameras and be ready to enjoy the colors and a lot of things around the area. Highly recommended.

My husband and I wanted to see downtown Jacksonville. The only issue here is parking... good luck is all I have to say about that. It is fun to visit this fountain and see the sites.
